We're all starting to get to our single digit countdown in weeks. I've 9 weeks to go.
Is anyone else starting to freak out a little, or is it just me??
I have started to obviously think about labour, but also logistically how I'm going to handle having two kids. E.g. if they both fell asleep in the car and I'm home alone, how do I get them both inside quickly as it will be Summer! THe things I worry about.... These things worry me more than labour really, considering that is only one day of my life.
Hope you are all feeling well.

ive got 9 weeks and 6 days till my due date. ive been freaking out the entire pregnancy
dont stress too much about going from 1 to 2. you find your feet pretty quickly and just adapt to being able to handle the 2 in those situations

I hope it will just happen naturally.
What are you freaking out about? Everything?
I was induced last time, and I'm thinking about if I were to go naturally, when do I go to hospital etc... I seem to be able to put it out of my mind a lot of the time but then it will just pop in out of nowhere!! lol

I'm starting to feel the anxiety as well, I'm more worried about having things ready, i.e. clothes washed, bag packed, nursery ready, capsule installed etc. I was only thinking this morning in though, how do you manage a newborn and a 2yo at a swimming pool.... DD cannot swim, but if I have to get out of the water to attend to baby then I'm relying on negotiation skills to bring DD out of the water, or adequate floatation devices on DD.... arrggh!

I am definitely feeling it too! I am 30 weeks today, so not in the single digit countdown yet.
It may be tricky at first but once you find your routine I'm sure things will go smoothly.
Lucky for me I will have a five year old mini mummy to help out!

I'm 30 weeks 3 days, so in single digits here. I'm excited but scared of labour as I never experienced labour with my son.
I'm worried how I will cope as I am tired now with just 1, and how my son will cope with a new brother.

3 weeks to go and totally stressing out about what still needs to be done and the time left to do it.
I still have to get a capsule, wash the baby clothes, get a changing table, sort out the baby room etc. We have only just got the house sorted with boxes unpacked as we moved two weeks ago.
Also my DH just started a new job which is FIFO today. So all the heavy lifting etc just has to wait till he's home.
As impatient as I am for the baby to arrive I am also thinking, just a little more time!

Glad I'm not the only one then.
Suz01 - I have thought about the swimming thing too, and if I can get DS into swimming lessons, can you actually do that with a baby around?? Don't think so... And in our area it is near impossible to get a weekend lesson.
DS seems to be happy about getting a little sister, whether he is still this happy once she arrives is another matter!! We installed his new car seat and he has taken to that like a duck to water and he now refers to the other seat as the baby's seat and puts baby toys in it...

Haven't gotten eveything organised yet, worried about the actual birth, having an incredible range of emotions and thoughts about how life will change, and not jut the practicalties but my own identity and ow I define myself, my closest relationships, how to integrate the new bubs into the still new step family dynamics (only once a fortnight bu still!)
